The Spirit of the Streets Choir (Inc) commenced in Perth, Western Australia in 2007, formerly as the Big Issue Choir, with the leadership of Bernard and Eleanor Carney. It provides an environment where people from all walks of life and all social backgrounds can come together in song and friendship. SOS, with their accomplished Choir Director Bernard Carney, welcomes everyone as active members of a performing choir in a safe, welcoming and non-judgemental environment.
Rehearsals are held each Tuesday 1.15pm – 3.30pm at St Albans Church, 423 Beaufort St, Highgate. St Albans is located on the corner of St. Albans Ave and Beaufort St, Highgate, about 2kms north of the centre of the Perth CBD. No previous singing experience is required, no audition is conducted, just a desire to sing, make friends and have fun. The Choir also performs a variety of gigs and concerts during the year.
There are no subscriptions levied against the Members.
The Choir is run by a small but dedicated band of volunteers who give their time and expertise freely and they support the Music Director, Bernard Carney in his work with the Choir.
